Remember To Check-Off $3 On Your State Tax Return

Posted on Jan 6, 2014 in Main

The Hawaii Campaign Spending Commission operates from a trust fund called the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund.  This fund depends on Hawaii taxpayers checking off the box on their state income tax form which permits $3 from state funds (or $6 if married and filing a joint return) to be allocated to our trust fund.  Tax filers are informed that participation is voluntary and does not increase their tax or reduce their refund.  Monies in this campaign fund help to provide accountability, transparency and integrity by providing full and partial public funding to candidates and paying the operational expenses of the Commission.  See, Hawaii Revised Statutes, Sections 235-102.5 and 11-421.
